Madison, Wis. (March 30, 2016) – Edgewood College is pleased to welcome Doug Bradley and Craig Werner to a public event discussing their bestseller We Gotta Get Out of This Place: The Soundtrack of the Vietnam War.

Selected as Rolling Stone’s #1 Best Music Book of 2015, the work explores how and why a diverse array of U.S. troops turned to music as a way of coping with the complexities of the war they had been sent to fight. 

Doug Bradley currently serves as an adjunct faculty member in the COR Program at Edgewood College.  Craig Werner is Chair of the Department of Afro-American Studies at UW-Madison.

The discussion takes place from 5:30 – 7:00 pm, Thursday, April 7, 2016, in Anderson Auditorium. Greater Madison is invited, and there is no admission fee.
